COVID-19 safety measures

The coronavirus (COVID-19) was identified in 2019 in Wuhan, China. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that can cause a variety of illnesses in humans, from the common cold to Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). As a result, the entire world was crippled by its unprecedented spread and no vaccine was in sight until recently.

Like other countries around the world, Djibouti has been actively campaigning to limit the impact of the pandemic on the population. SGTD Doraleh Terminal has also put in place rigorous measures to contain the pandemic within the Terminal:

SGTD has also put in place rigorous measures to contain the pandemic within the terminal:

  • Distribution and wearing of mandatory masks for all employees and visitors,

  • In partnership with members of the Ministry of Health, two specially fitted and fully equipped containers within the Terminal dedicated to screening all external visitors,
  • Cleaning kits provided inside each cabin for the operators,
  • Hand washing stations in several areas of the Terminal,
  • Closure of gathering places (canteen, mosque…)
  • Distribution of individual gel and gloves,
  • Increase in the number of buses made available to employees,
  • New badging system to avoid contact,
  • Screening session for employees.
